We are happy to launch a Manyways #Smart #Mobility Dashboard for Brussels Airport Company, together with the great people from Waylay! After succesfully launching Manyways mobility dashboards for #Brussels and #Antwerp, a new Manyways dashboard makes it easier to get insights in the mobility to and around Brussels Airport and spark conversations, based on real figures.

Like: at this moment, 4.7% of the cars driving on Brussels ring road, have Brussels Airport as a destination. At this moment: 18.5% of the NMBS-SNCB trains at the airport are running late, vs. 20% of the De Lijn busses. This hour, more cars are leaving the airport (360 or 67%) than entering the terminal area (180 or 33%).
We absolutely see the value of getting the data where it is, and visualise what the possibilities are. Mobility data & figures enable decent planning of individual trips, but above all: decent policy making and monitoring & evaluation! We will keep seeking for interesting mobility data and visualise it for employees, inhabitants and visitors of other cities, companies and economic hotspots.

MORE LION's Pieter Morlion has been selected to attend the WISE-ACT training school on autonomous mobility end of March in Haifa, Israel. The workshop (programme here) will be attended by academics from all over Europe and led by leading experts and professors in the field.
Waylay and MORE LION launch together www.manyways.be. Manyways is a project that brings mobility data in Belgium to life. We crawl in the deepest digital caves, we drink coffee with the coolest civil servants and play pingpong with the most skilled startups to find interesting data on mobility in your beloved city. The Manyways wizards unleash their IoT skills and mobility insights on the datastreams. They chop, cook, blend and iron the information to make sense and look pretty. Especially for you! You, daily commuter, data enthusiast, mobility expert, concerned citizen, trainspotter and cyclist with a preference for dry underwear.
MORE LION supports the City of Things team at Imec in shaping the Mobilidata programme. #Mobilidata is an initiative of the Flemish government (article on the page of the government department for innovation).
Following an open letter, an interview in newspaper De Morgen and an opinion piece in Knack, More Lion's Pieter Morlion was interviewed by Hajo Beeckman and Pieterjan Huyghebaert on how self-driving cars could shape our future.
